SCRIP is a program whereby St. Albert's purchases gift certificates at a discount and sells them at face value. SCRIP is purchased by school families, parishioners and friends and used "just like cash" in participating stores. A few of these stores will also accept SCRIP as payment on charge accounts. ESCRIP is paperless SCRIP that relies on the ease and convenience of a credit card. Register a credit, ATM or a debit card with eSCRIP and use it at participating Card SCRIP merchants and your profits from the merchants are automatically processed. There is also a SCRIP MasterCard available. One percent on all purchases is rebated to the school, and there are numerous bonus merchants with greater percentages. Also if you shop using the Scholari's Friendship Fund or Target credit Card, we receive one percent. We also have some options for parents who shop on the internet.
The profit made by the SCRIP program goes directly into the school general fund and technology budgets. The SCRIP program can raise enough income to minimize tuition increases.
Please call Natasha Supancheck at 747-0722 for more information on any of these programs.
